Los Angeles County Coroner’s officials have identified a man found dead in the 8700 block of Santa Monica Boulevard on Feb. 9 as Emory Clark, 47.
Corner’s Office spokesman Ed Winter said Clark apparently died of natural causes, but an official cause of death would not be determined until toxicology tests are completed. An autopsy was conducted on Tuesday, and the final reports will likely take several weeks, Winter said. Clark was described as being a transient, and Winter said officials do not have any past addresses for the victim.
Lt. Mike White, with the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, confirmed a body was found around 9:20 a.m. on Feb. 9 in the walkway of a business on Santa Monica Boulevard. There was no indication of foul play, and deputies turned the investigation over to the coroner’s office.
